What is a Railway electric Brackett or Catenary or Cantilever ?

A catenary is a system of overhead wires used to supply electricity to a locomotive, tram (streetcar), or light rail vehicle that is equipped with a pantograph.

simple overhead wires, in which the uninsulated wire is attached by clamps to closely spaced crosswires supported by poles, catenary systems use at least two wires. The catenary or messenger wire is hung at a specific tension between line structures, and a second wire is held in tension by the messenger wire, attached to it at frequent intervals by clamps and connecting wires known as droppers. The second wire is straight and level, parallel to the rail track, suspended over it as the roadway of a suspension bridge is over water.

Catenary systems are suited to high-speed operations whereas simple wire systems, which are less expensive to build and maintain, are common on light rail or tram (streetcar) lines, especially on city streets. Such vehicles can be fitted with either a pantograph or trolley pole.

What are the types of classes for passenger transport in Indian Railways?

1]Unreserved General Class (UR)

India’s poorest people travel in Unreserved General Class (UR), as well as those who haven't been fortunate enough to secure a ticket in Sleeper Class. Reservations aren’t required and the concept of overcrowding really is taken to a new level. There’s sitting or standing room only, and any spare floor space is occupied by those willing to sleep on it. Most seats are simply wooden benches, although some trains do have padded benches.Unreserved Class is not recommended for long distance train travel in India.
2]Second Seating (2S)

Reservations are required in Second Seating, or Second Class (2S). 2S is usually found on daytime intercity trains and is a cheap way of traveling. There are three seats on either side of the aisle, and they don't recline. Most of them are cushioned bench-style seats, although some newer carriages have individual seats. There are no sleeping facilities in this class. Carriages are cooled with fans.Bearable for short distance trips if really necessary. However, carriages are often occupied by passengers who don't have reservations. 
3]Sleeper Class (SL)

While most of India's middle class used to travel in Sleeper Class, many have now moved up to AC 3. These days, you'll often find people from General Class (who were unable to get confirmed tickets) flooding over into the Sleeper Class carriages. The
carriages are divided into open-plan compartments with six beds in each. The beds are stacked vertically in three tiers on either side of the compartments. During the day, the middle beds must be folded down flat against the compartment walls to allow passengers to sit on the lower beds. Two tiers of beds are also located outside the compartments, along the aisle. Fans on the carriage ceiling provide some cooling, and the windows have bars to keep intruders out as they are usually kept open. The bathrooms have both western and Indian style toilets.
4]Three Tier Air Conditioned Class (3A)

Three Tier Air Conditioned Class, known as 3AC, offers a significant step up in comfort and quietness. The carriages in 3AC are laid out in the same manner as in Sleeper Class. However, the windows are covered with tinted glass that’s unable to be opened, and air-conditioning keeps the carriages cool. Bedding and hand towels are provided to passengers.
Passengers tend to keep to themselves more in 3AC, but privacy is still severely lacking due to the open plan nature of the
compartments. Most importantly, the carriages and bathrooms in usually remain much cleaner than those in Sleeper Class.
5]Two Tier Air Conditioned Class (2AC)

Two Tier Air Conditioned Class, known as 2AC, attracts India’s upper class travelers. There’s much more space, as there are only four beds in each compartment. The beds are stacked vertically in two tiers on either side. Just like in the other classes, there are also two tiers of beds along the aisle outside the compartments. Bedding and towels are also provided, the same as in 3AC.The best thing about 2AC is the added benefit of privacy curtains on the entrance to each compartment, as well as across each of the beds that run along the aisle. The curtains are usually always kept drawn and this class of accommodation is quite devoid of any interaction.
6]First Class Air Conditioned (1AC)

First Class Air Conditioned, known as 1AC, is found only on the most popular inter-state train routes. The cost is around double that of 2AC and is comparable to that of flying. Compartments have lockable doors, carpet and either two or four beds, stacked vertically in tiers. The beds are wider than other classes. Sheets, pillows, blankets, towels, and room freshener are also provided. 1AC carriages also have better and cleaner bathrooms, plus shower cubicles.If comfort and privacy are utmost concerns, choose 1AC. The only problem with 1AC is that it's not possible to specify if you want a two bed or four bed compartment when you book. However, couples are normally allocated accommodations in the two bed compartments, while singles and families are accommodated in the four bed compartments.
7]Executive Air Conditioned Chair Car (1A)

Executive Class is only found on Shatabdi,Tejas, Vande Bharat Express trains, which are premium super fast passenger trains that run between major cities (such as Delhi, Agra and Jaipur etc.),It's Indian Railways' version of airline business class. Carriages have only two seats on each side of the aisle. This makes them less crowded, and provides more leg room and luggage space. Better food is also served.This class is well maintained, clean, and pleasant for a day trip. However, it costs significantly more than Air Conditioned Chair Car,Some people don't think the price difference is worth it. You may be better of paying a bit extra and flying.
8]Air Conditioned Chair Car (CC)

Air Conditioned Chair Car carriages (CC) are commonly found on shorter distance Indian Railways trains between major cities, especially those sectors that are frequented by business travelers. The carriages are slightly more crowded than Executive Class. They have three seats on one side of the aisle, and two on the other.The seats recline, there is overhead space for luggage, and bathrooms tend to be relatively clean. It's a comfortable enough way to travel on day trips.

What are some important guidelines to be followed while travelling by train during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Travelling on trains for any length of time involves sitting or standing within 6 feet of others, which may increase one's risk of getting COVID-19. Read these guidelines that will help you prepare better for train travel.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public transport was limited to essential workers, those wanting to commute for other jobs were not permitted to use this service. As lockdowns lifted and workplaces reopened across the cities, office goers eagerly waited for train services to resume service. But for people travelling through train, it’s imperative to understand the measures one can adopt to have a safe journey to and from work.


Stay updated: Check the train schedule beforehand, this way you can time your travel in the non-peak hours and at a time slot of your preference and convenience.

Get your pass/ ticket in order: If possible, get an e-pass/ e-ticket so you don’t have to wait in serpentine queues to get your travel documents in order. Choose to make contactless reservations and payments.

Anticipate your travel needs: Carry a 3-ply face mask, a hand sanitizer, and a few disinfectant wipes with you. Carry a few extra masks in a sealed bag, so you could replace your mask if it gets soiled.

Prepare: Before you leave for work, wash your hands with soap and water and then wear your mask. Once worn, it should not be touched or removed till you arrive at your workplace. Wear gloves before you step out, these will work as a barrier if you end up touching door handles, railings etc. The gloves can be disposed appropriately after reaching your workplace — if you don’t have gloves, ensure that you don’t touch your face during the transit and that you wash your hands thoroughly after getting work done.


Avoid touching surfaces: Avoid touching frequently touched surfaces such as ticket machines, handrails, elevator buttons and benches as much as possible. If you do touch these surfaces, immediately wash your hands with soap and water or use a sanitizer containing 60% alcohol.

Follow social distancing guidelines: Stay at least 6 feet away from other commuters and avoid gathering in groups. Consider skipping a few seats between yourself and other passengers if possible. Follow signs put out by the railways indicating where to stand or sit, where to queue up and the exit signs.

Using public bathrooms at the train station: Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after using the public bathroom.

Buying food and water at the train station: Carry your own water bottle and food packets, don’t accept or offer water bottles to other commuters. If you end up buying food or water at the train station, pay contactless or in exact change. Avoid removing your mask to eat and drink during your commute — instead wait till you reach your workplace.

Avoid spitting: This is a strict no.


Hand hygiene: After completing your trip sanitize your hands, upon reaching your workplace wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Mask hygiene: Remove the mask you wore during your travel & replace it with a fresh one. The previously worn mask can be placed in a sealed bag to wash or dispose.

Avoid crowding in the cafeteria: At work, avoid eating together during lunch time and maintain safe distance in the cafeteria as well.

Some types of travel methods can put you at higher risk for exposure to COVID-19, but by taking ample precautions and following hygiene etiquettes, we can ensure a safe commute.
